4" pitman arm on 2.5" level kit?

Wondering what you guys think about running a 4" pitman arm with a 2.5" level kit. Yes, it's 1.5" to much, but w/out it you are 2.5" short. It'd be like lowering the front end 1.5" vs jacing it up 2.5" with the OEM pitman.

Heck most lift companies use the same pitman arm for 4" & 6" kits. so I guess there is room to move.

You are supposed to drop the track bar if you drop the pitman arm.

I know of 2 or 3 companies that make a 2-3" track bar bracket. But I can't seem to find a 2-3" pitman arm. I'm probly just going to be running stock f250 height, maybe try and find/fab .5" spacers for the front. trying to salvage some MPG's. and working out of my truck with a 4" lift is annoying. I think i'm averaging 13mpg (overall) on my last tank; city & hwy.

I have a 2" spacer and alignment cams that I will be selling in about a month or so after I do my coilovers. No need for drops.
